Target swaps its shopping carts for Mario Karts

Target swaps its shopping carts for Mario Karts

According to GameSpot, a Nintendo spokesperson has revealed that the "Mario Kart 8 Deluxe" bundle with Nintendo Switch is real.

Target will display Mario and Luigi faces outside of the stores on those spherical ornaments so guests know what to expect before they even walk inside.

By the complete opposite token, Nintendo has also implemented a new "Smart Steering function" which will go quite some way to helping beginners and some of the youngest Mario Kart players in the world. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe includes all of the downloadable content from Mario Kart 8's original release, as well as several new racers, a brand new Battle Mode, and improved graphics.

What do you think of Target's Mario Kart 8 promotion? It can also be recalled that there were "Mario Kart" packages for the Wii and Wii U as well, including the games Mario Kart Wii and Mario Kart 8.

Building on this, players now have eight new arenas and a whole host of modes to tuck into from Mario Kart's past.

Of course, it helps that the game is the best iteration of Mario Kart there's ever been.

Target is basically giving you the green light to take shopping carts and race through the store as quickly as possibly. But then, Nintendo's Russian site has seemingly leaked the presence of a "Mario Kart 8 Deluxe" bundle, which has been spotted by Reddit user Lord_Daenar. However, if this is a sign for things to come for future Nintendo Switch games, it may turn some people off to the idea of using the Switch as a portable multiplayer device, especially those that don't want to shell out the extra cash for a Pro controller just to play local multiplayer games comfortably.
